Global trade patterns are changing... economic and social development through trade and investment.

  • Trade flows within regions account for a higher share of world trade than flows between regions

  • Asia Pacific & EU trade more within the region

  • However many regions trade more with other regions than internally: Africa, South and Central America, Middle East and CIS

  • In spite of quick growth in traded value, over the past 30 years the share of services, excluding Mode 3 (commercial presence), in global trade has been quite stable around 20%

  • BUT, Mode 3 is not captured in current trade in services statistics

  • FDI data shows that more than half of FDI flows are in the services sector

  • FDI keeps on growing globally...

Introduction33 l.jpg
Introduction economic and social development through trade and investment.

  • An exporter of pineapples is looking to diversify its client base…Which country should be targeted?

  • A shoe exporter needs an overview of trade barriers he/she would face for exports to Malaysia…

  • A trade mission needs to know our top export products to Germany…

  • Where could you import automotive components from?Who are the largest suppliers in your region?

  • What is the current trade between your country and the United States?

Initial answers to these questions and many more are easily found in Trade Map


Trade map34 l.jpg
Trade Map economic and social development through trade and investment.

  • Online application to produce reports on international trade flows

    • Every product (HS-6) to and from (almost) every country

  • Based on probably the largest trade flow database in the world

  • User-friendly interface, report-ready outputs

  • Flexibility for customising reports, analysis

  • Graphic presentation of outputs to facilitate analysis


Key characteristics l.jpg
Key economic and social development through trade and investment.characteristics

  • Where does the data come from?

    • National Authorities

    • COMTRADE, produced by the United Nations Statistics Division database

  • What is Trade Map’s geographical coverage?

    • Information for over 220 countries and territories using data reported by 160 countries and territories

    • Data for non-reporting countries is spawned from mirror statistics

  • What is Trade Map’s product coverage?

    • For the Harmonized System

      • over 5,300 products at the 6 digit level

    • For the National Tariff Line

      • up to 30,000 products for 90 countries (~84% of world trade)

  • What is Trade Map’s time horizon?

    • Yearly, quarterly and monthly data


Data classification l.jpg
Data classification economic and social development through trade and investment.

  • The Harmonized System (HS)

    • Is used as a basis for the collection of Custom duties and international trade statistics by almost all countries, representing about 98% of world trade

    • Developed by the World Customs Organisation – WCO (www.wcoomd.org)

    • Implemented late 1980s.

    • Harmonised different existing nomenclatures

    • Adopted by almost all countries in the world

    • Basis for all trade conversations internationally

    • Main revisions in 1996 and 2007


Data classification37 l.jpg

More and more specific economic and social development through trade and investment.

HS-2

HS-4

HS-6

Data classification

  • The Harmonized System (HS)

    • Is a numerical classification system of products used as a basis for international trade statistics by almost all countries.

    • is harmonized up to six digits (HS-6) - You can compare HS data between countries.

    • Is broken down into 3 clusters:

      • HS-2: the chapter of the good (sector)

        • E.g. 09 = Coffee, Tea, Mate and Spices

      • HS-4: groupings within the chapter (sub-sector)

        • E.g. 0902 = Tea, whether or not flavoured

      • HS-6: product(s) within the grouping (product level)

        • E.g. 090210 = Green tea (not fermented)


Data classification38 l.jpg

HS-2 economic and social development through trade and investment.

HS-4

HS-6

NTL

Data classification

  • National Tariff Lines (NTL) codes

    • Classification of goods after the 6 digit level of the Harmonized System classification.

    • National Tariff Lines go from 8 digits to 12 digits.

  • Why use the HS and NTL classification?

    • The HS classification is standardised internationally

    • The NTL classification is not standardised internationally.

      Each country decides its own further classification after the Harmonized System. Hence, National Tariff Line codes can be different from a country to another.

More and more specific

Information on tariffs and other market access conditions


Market access l.jpg
Market Access economic and social development through trade and investment.

  • Information on market access conditions allows exporters to:

    • Evaluate the competitiveness of the product relative to suppliers from other countries under different tariff schemes

    • Select markets/market segments in which the product has the best prospects

    • Adapt, where necessary, the product to conform to the target market’s import regulations


Types of tariffs l.jpg
Types of tariffs economic and social development through trade and investment.

  • Ad valorem tariffs:

MAcMap includes economic and social development through trade and investment.ad valorem equivalents

  • Ad Valorem Equivalents – AVE:

    • Are a common measure of the effect of the different types of tariff on the product, as if they were all ad valorem.

    • Are calculated for specific, mixed, compound or variable tariffs and anti-dumping rates and countervailing duties

    • Are calculated by:

      AVE = Particular Tariff per Unit Unit Value

    • Allow for regional or sectoral tariffs to be added and compared

    • Allow for comparison of effective levels of protection across countries.

  • The total AVE is the sum of all individual ad valorem equivalents


Common types of trade agreements l.jpg
Common types of trade agreements economic and social development through trade and investment.

  • Partial Scope Agreement: reduces trade restrictions between partner countries for a few products

  • Free Trade Zone/Agreement/Area: eliminates trade barriers within the zone (FTA, RTA, etc.)

  • Customs Union: free trade zone + common external tariff

  • Common Market: customs union + free flow of factors of production within region (capital, labour)

  • Economic Union: unification/harmonization of economic policies: monetary policy, fiscal policy, regulatory regimes…

Data limitations l.jpg
Data limitations economic and social development through trade and investment.

  • FDI

    • International reporting practices (IMF BOPMV; OECD,2004) are not followed uniformly

    • Countries that report often do so with considerable time lag

    • FDI data are affected by:

      • Identification of ultimate owner

      • Valuation problems of FDI stocks

      • Round-tripped investment and transhipped investment

  • Foreign affiliates

    • Data on foreign affiliates vary from country to country

Data limitations66 l.jpg
Data limitations economic and social development through trade and investment.

  • Different data classifications:

    • FDI data cannot always be allocated accurately to a given industry or a given country

      • Investment flows may fall under multiple activities

    • Foreign affiliates are based on the United States nomenclature, US SIC87.

    • Its conversion to the ISIC nomenclature can only be approximative

    • Trade data (HS 6 digit level) are converted into the ISIC classification.


Measuring fdi l.jpg
Measuring FDI economic and social development through trade and investment.

FDI flows

  • Are the total amount of FDI undertaken over a given period of time (quarter, year), and they comprise:

    • Net sales of shares with the parent company (10% participation threshold)

    • Net intra-company loans (short- and long- term) with the parent company

    • Reinvested earnings of a foreign affiliate in the host country

  • Sources: Central Banks and/or Statistical offices


Measuring fdi68 l.jpg
Measuring FDI economic and social development through trade and investment.

FDI stocks

  • Are the total accumulated value of foreign-owned assets at a given time, and they comprise:

    • The value of the share of their capital and reserves belonging to foreign companies

    • The net indebtedness with the parent companies

  • Sources: Balance sheets or enterprise surveys


Measuring fdi69 l.jpg

Stocks and flows are related over time: economic and social development through trade and investment.
